A New Project
One of the things I've been trying to do lately is come up
with ideas for the doilies I make.
This of course is not a doily, but a little crocheted motif I made
with linen thread and then
I hand stitched it onto a piece of linen fabric.
I think hand-stitching is so relaxing, I don't know why I don't do
it more often.
I made 3 little pin cushions/lavender sachets with the linen
thread I already have in my stash.
You can use any kind of crochet thread...
you know I'm just crazy about the linen stuff, right? :-)
It was fun digging into my linen scrap pile
to find pieces of fabric to work with.
Finding the remnants of linen at the fabric store is the way to go
for little projects like this.
So, that's one way I can use crochet pieces,
but here's another "long-term" project
I'm working on.
This is a pineapple doily I crocheted a while back.
I saw somewhere on Pinterest a window covering
made of sewn together doilies!
OK, here's the thing...
I could probably get enough doilies from the antique store
for under $20.00 to make a window panel,
but I want to crochet my own!
(It could be a while before I complete this WIP) :-)
Other than that, I'm working on 2 different afghans,
a scarf, a table runner, and
2 different doilies.
Hum...maybe I need to complete these WIP's before I start another.
How about you? Are you good at finishing one project before
starting something else?
love the sachets and the curtain idea!
i am not so good at finishing a WIP before starting on something else.i was just looking around my studio yesterday commenting on the bags of projects i have,
Your talent never ceases to amaze me. Everything you make is really so beautiful.
I'll bet the window covering would be gorgeous!
Happy day to you!
I too have a hard time finishing a project before starting another...
Love what you doing with these crocheted doilies! <3 Doilies
